When you have to stay up almost all night dodging freighters and fishing boats, it sure helps to know you are taking the best vitamins! See the announcement and thanks to Mariner’s Vitamins for the great products. 

A percentage of the sales of Prometan bars (which are really delicious) and Mariner’s Vitamins will go to support Ocean Planet and the Made in America Foundation, so please visit their site where these products will soon be available!

We are still in need of donations or that “big” sponsor to make the Around Alone, but it sure helps to have these folks aboard.
